See Dr. Mark C. Hutten in a patient video for the ACP. Few think to go to a prosthodontist (a specialized dentist with advanced training in oral health issues) for head and neck cancer. Cancer patients benefit from a multidisciplinary care team comprised of physicians, prosthodontists, and maxillofacial prosthodontists who collaborate to improve patient outcomes.
